Only a few prokaryotic or eukaryotic enzymes are known to consist of a tandem-repeat structure. This report describes a common hexapeptide-repeat theme in four Escherichia coli transferases and in four less-characterized bacterial proteins. The proteins are the Ssc protein of Salmonella typhimurium (25), UDP-N-acetylglucosamine acyltransferase of E. coli (24), the hypothetical proteins Tms of Bacillus subtilis (23) and Yglm of E. coli (22), succinyldiaminopimelate aminotransferase of E. coli… CONTINUE READING
